Wow, we're shocked by the 24-year-old's violence!

A representative for the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police said of the incident:

"A man by the name Abel Tesfaye was arrested on Saturday night in Las Vegas at about 4:42 a.m. Special Event officers responded to call regarding a fight that broke out at the 3500 Block of South Las Vegas Blvd. When they got to the venue there was a big group of people in an altercation."

Abel was subsequently charged with battery of a protected person and he's currently out on bail.
